Comments for Big Boy Bed
Big Boy Bed: 4/12/04Sean is really into doing things for himself. Last week he asked us in his own special way through toddler pantomime for us to remove the side of his crib. He wanted to be able to put himself to bed.
Yesterday we finally caved in to his request and converted his crib into a toddler bed. He must have spent an hour practicing getting into bed and out of bed. Then he learned how to bounce on the mattress!
Of course when it really was his bed time he wasn't quite as eager to stay in bed as he was to go to bed. It took some careful coercing on our part to convince him to stay in bed. He did eventually agree to stay in bed and slept the entire night there without falling out. This morning when I went in to check on him I found him in his chair by the window watching the sunrise.
